Default SO CONFUSING.....does oil seal in moisture or moisturize??

I have heard many things. I heard after you condition you should seal with oil to keep the moisture in. I also have heard of people pre pooing with a hot oil treatment. What is the deal? should u do a hot oil treatment after or before you condition???

Most oils help seal in moisture. However coconut, olive, and avocado oil are actually able to penetrate the scalp to provide moisture. When I pre-poo I use Vatika Oil or Olive Oil because it help soften my hair, which in terms helps my detangling process. Pre-pooing also helps prevent/buffer against hydral (sp?) fatigue. Ladies edit my post or add more. However this is what I have learned in a nutshell.

Moisturizing and sealing are one in the same in definition. The terminology is often misused as if they're separate entities but they are not.

Conditioning ( or hydrating) is often confused as moisturizing.

IMO, "moisture" and "hydration" are the same. "Moisture" and "Conditioning" aren't necessarily the same. There are products that moisturize and condition, and there are products that condition - add strength, for instance, but not necessarily moisture. That's why it's recommended to use a moisturizing conditioner, after using a high-protein conditioner.

To add moisture, use a water-based product, or straight water. To seal in moisture, use an oil/butter.

Exactly what Karen of Karen's Body Beautiful explained to us a few weeks ago. That was something I guess I was confused about all these years. I used to equate shine to moisture and think that putting an oil in my dry hair moisturized it because it made it shiny.
